Abstract

One class of neurons in the nucleus reticularis pontis caudalis (NRPC) was antidromically identified by weak shocks to project an ascending axon into the region of the ipsilateral medial longitudinal fasciculus (iMLF); these are called NRPC-iMLF neurons. Some were excited orthodromically at monosynaptic or longer latencies by shocks to the region of the contralateral medial vestibular nucleus (cMVN). Some were excited at disynaptic or longer latencies by shocks to the ipsilateral (18) or contralateral (c8) 8th nerve. Many showed convergence from several inputs. These NRPC-iMLF neurons are hypothesized to participate in vestibuloocular or other vestibular functions.
